On October 23, 2010, I participated in a photo shoot out at Berry College.  The event was hosted by the North Georgia Camera Club and was attended by over 300 photographers.  Photographers were from camera clubs from North Georgia and Tennessee.  The event was held in Rome, Georgia at Berry College—one of my favorite places to photograph.  The photo above is of an old abandoned building on the campus.
The event was great fun! I had a wonderful time traveling around the campus with four other women photographing. I was a team lead for the Sweetwater Camera Club and helped by processing photos for an assigned topic.

The way the event worked was the after everyone was registered and settled in, five different topics were drawn and all 300 photographers went throughout the campus taking photographs of the five subjects.  After photographing for several hours, time was allowed for photo processing. 

Each camera club has to choose ten photos per subject to submit for judging.  Then, the judges choose the best five images from all the camera clubs and prizes were awarded.

The competition was fierce—there were some amazing photographers at the competition. Many of the photos were very creative and technically beautiful.  It was an honor to be in the company of so many great photographers.

As of the end of October, the winning photos aren’t up yet, but keep checking the website to view the winners.
